    EUP directive evaluation/testing/certification

        Framework Directive for the Eco-design of Energy Using Products (EuP) – EuP directives, published July 2005. By setting up this law framework, EU hopes to regulate the use of energy to satisfy environmental requirements, so as to have positive effect on energy-saving products, promoting sustainable development and ensuring the free flow of products.
    This Directive covers almost all energy-using products except for means of transportation to the extent that energy-using products are sold in considerable quantity and traded in considerable volume (more than 200,000 pieces each year based on available up-to-date figures) and have major environmental impact.

    IM-Implement Measures:
        The concept of EuP is first time induced in to Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), including the origin of raw material selection, manufacture, transportation, distribution, installation, maintaince and recycle. The whole process is analysis based on EuP, to reduce the influence to environment. EuP is just a set of frame directives, there is no detailed requirement. A set of requirement may be published gradually, which needs to be in accordance with Impalement Measures (IM).
        Directive EuP only refers to one framework directive and has no specific requirements for enterprises or products. Implement measures for Directive EuP will be gradually added. Up till now, the implement measures for nine kinds of energy-using products have come into force; it is expected that eco-design requirements for more than forty kinds of energy-using products will be advanced in the future several years. According to Directive EuP Article 5 and Article 8 and Appendix IV, manufacturers are required to conduct conformity assessment on products in accordance with Directive EuP, including:
        .Product CE Mark and EC conformity statement
        .Preparation of technical documents
        .Product performance test
